Print raft and skirt together

You can always design (one of) them in CAD, and consider it part of your model. But for printing, using both has no practical meaning as far as I know.

    I dont want to add it in CAD, the CAD file should only contain the required design. I face an issue once in a while where because of raft not being printed properly the surface of the print over that portion of the raft gets a bit distorted.  To combat this properly I increased the raft margin which I had decreased earlier. Also added a priming step in start G code, sometimes though the primed filament gets in the way of the print.


    In simplify 3d we can add a skirt and raft together, and I usually do that. Wanted to know if it was possible in CURA too
